I live in Central California and our rural property is covered in poison oak. Due to having to clear land for wildfire season, I have no choice but to work in it. I am very sensitive to poison oak, but have worked now for 6 weekends with no symptoms, after having had some bad run-ins. Here is what I do:

Before dressing: put something on my skin to help keep the oil from bonding in case it gets through. I actually use waterproof sunscreen, even on areas which will be under clothing, in case any oil gets through.

Dress well: I wear ordinary sneakers, with two pairs of heavy socks. I wear two layers of pants: a pair of cotton warmups underneath some fatigue-type pants. A long-sleeve cotton shirt. For gloves, I bought the heavy rubber chemical-resistant-type (facilitates cleanup) and the oil cannot soak through.

Timing: If you "know" you are exposing yourself to poison oak, do not do it for more than 2-3 hours, just in case any gets through.

Clean-up: The FIRST thing you should do is have a can of mineral spirits (paint thinner) and a rag. As others have noted, the oil is like a lacquer that dries on your skin and won't wash off with soap and water. Start by soaking the rag and cleaning any tools you used. I used to use Tecnu to clean my tools, but I realize that's not necessary, the paint thinner works just fine. Now wipe your gloves without taking them off. Next, wipe down your shoes. Pull off your shoes, then gloves before you go into the house. Next, go straight into the laundry room and as you undress, everything needs to go straight in. I have found that using ordinary detergent and hot water cleans everything just fine. Mix lights and darks, who cares, these are just your work clothes, right?

Every summer, I get in contact with poison ivy and then my entire body reacts. I usually end up with one or sometimes two rounds of steroids just to keep my hives under control. Ever since I discovered Technu a few years back, I have managed to keep my reaction to a minimum.

The instructions on the bottles tell you that you should wash ASAP. But I can vouch that it works *even after a day or two*! The trick is NOT to wash once and think it's done. Every time the itch returns, use Technu again.

And when you do use it, you MUST use it along with soap. Technu seems to bond with the oil of poison ivy, but to completely remove the oil, you must first scrub with Technu (a thin coating of Technu on your skin is sufficient, but make sure you rub/scrub for a few minutes at least to get the stuff into the wrinkles and creases in your skin.) Then scrub well with soap (perhaps a few times). Sometimes I use a piece of tissue (which doesn't absorb a huge amount of Technu and isn't too rough on the already irritated skin) to help me scrub.

But remember to re-apply each time the itch returns, and to clean surfaces of tools, door handles, and clothing if necessary, with this stuff. My experiences have been: You don't need a huge amount of Technu each time, but make sure Technu comes into full contact with surfaces that have poison ivy oil on. Repeated applications of Technu may sound bothersome to some people, but, if you are as allergic as I am to poison ivy, you will go to any lengths to keep your body from getting out of wack--and no other remedies I have tried, troublesome or not, have worked as well as Technu.

I have also read that cool/cold water is best for this situation as warm water opens the pores and allows the irritant(s) to get further into the skin. Don't know if this is correct, but it works for me.

We've used this product for about 8 years. My daughter and husband are extremely sensitive to poison ivy, and this product seems to be the only thing that works to prevent an outbreak or reduce spreading. We keep it handy to use right after exposure (the best time to use it), although it also works well after the rash has started. The product apparently dissolves the oil that causes the rash, so the rash doesn't spread.

Two things:
1) If you wind up itching from contact with a urushiol-containing plant, wash with jewelweed soap. It stops the itch and helps with healing.
2) Do not wash the same area of skin with Tecnu three times in a row.

Tecnu's instructions recommend rubbing vigorously for two minutes after application, rinsing, drying, then repeating the process. I once made the mistake of repeating the process twice so that I had rubbed vigorously for two minutes THREE times. I wound up with what looked like maybe 100 little pimples of the sort that appear when poison ivy contact first manifests itself in a visual way. But these pimples did not advance to a rash stage like regular poison ivy, and I found that I could quell the itch by squirting blue Dawn dishwashing liquid straight from the bottle and washing with cold water. After a few days of this, I saw my primary care provider and learned that I had something called Folliculitis. Wikipedia says, "Folliculitis starts when hair follicles are damaged by friction from clothing, an insect bite, blockage of the follicle, shaving, or braids too tight and too close to the scalp. In most cases of folliculitis, the damaged follicles are then infected with the bacterium Staphylococcus."

To combat the folliculitis, I was prescribed Erythromycin Topical Solution USP, 2%, which I applied twice a day for a little over 2 weeks until all the little pimples disappeared.

So, DO NOT apply Tecnu three times in a row instead of the recommended twice, lest you hazard getting folliculitis. I just thought I should share this information in case anyone else winds up with dozens of pimple-like skin abnormalities that do not become a rash.
